Celebrating World Science Day for Peace and Development

November 10th
is World Science Day for Peace and Development and has been celebrated since
2001. The 2016 celebration seeks to emphasize the importance of science centers
and museums to foster science communication. One of its goals is also to
support teachers who are making children excited about science and are
encouraging them to use their creativity to make a positive impact on the
world. Furthermore, this day can be especially useful for inspiring young women
to enter STEM fields, seeing as they are vastly underrepresented in these
careers.

let us renew the worldwide commitment of the 1999 UNESCO-ICSU World Conference
on Science in Budapest to using science for purposes of peace and development.
